Softube has unveiled the third iteration of its acclaimed Console 1 Channel mixing control surface.

Arriving this fall, the new Console 1 Channel Mk III boasts a number of feature and design upgrades that help you “put the focus back on the creative process.”

For one, going mouseless is easier than ever with the Console 1’s knob-per-function design which allows you to get a lot more hands-on with your mix. The controller also features two high-resolution smart screens and an industry-defining 1:1 workflow, ensuring you understand the adjustments you are making and where to find the most important parameters.

With this release, Softube has also improved the feel of the Console 1 Channel’s knobs. According to Softube, Mk III’s knobs boast an increase of more than ten times the resolution over the earlier generation, helping you future-proof your mixing setup.
